Alternate Paradigms Shapeways Shop

Post by Alternate Paradigms » Sun May 06, 2018 11:09 pm

Since the announcement of the various parts I have available through the Shapeways shop are spread over multiple threads, I figured I should take my cue from Crazy Eddie and create a single thread to highlight what is there.

Constitution Mark III Star Trek

As you know, Brian Pimenta created what Del & I are calling the "Constitution Mk III" ship. Brian designed his Enterprise soon after seeing ST III and speculated what the next version of the iconic ship would look like. I created one other variant using Brian's design elements. You can always pick up the 3 currently available kits through Multiverse Models. Thanks to a couple of suggestions from mophius, I have expanded the number of parts that can be used with your Connie Mk III universe of ships. Add to your fleet with these:

Dreadnought-style battleship
Image

Shorter neck
Image

Over nacelle, to be used with an MVM MK IIIverse kit or with a 2500 Cadet Refit, on its own or in conjunction with the Mk IIIverse-style Alternate Engines #2
Image

Under nacelle, to be used with an MVM Mk IIIverse kit or with a 2500 Cadet Refit, on its own or in conjunction with the Mk IIIverse-style Alternate Engines #2
Image

Coming soon: Sensor pods for a second type of science cruiser...

Alternate Engines

These were created to add a little variation to your 2500 Cadet ships. These should plug right into your AMT kits

Alternate Engines 1 - 2500 Scale - The sides of these nacelles are parallel to each other
Image

Alternate Engines 2 - 2500 Scale - The sides of these nacelles have a slight taper towards the back and are similar to those of the MVM kits
Image

Alternate Engines 3 - 2500 Scale- These nacelles have a slight bulge in the middle when viewed from the front
Image

Alternate Engines 4 - 2500 Scale - These are offered with the approval of Bill Krause
Image

Coming soon: Alternate engines for your Romulan and Klingon ships...

Let history never forget the name... Enterprise

CVN 65 in 2500... because. The CVN 65 is also offered in other scales, including 1800, 2400 and 3000. Check out my SW shop for those.
Image

Timey Wimey

The 9th and 10th Doctors' TARDIS is offered in various scales (72, 48 35 and 32). Check out the shop for those.

Coming soon: The First Doctor's TARDIS as well as the 11th and 12th Doctors' TARDIS

Parts shipped today so I should see them on Monday. When I have the parts to hand I will decide which ships I want to purchase off Del and place the order.

And finally the Sentinel type nacelles

I really should put some colour on them so you can see all the details.

I didn't see on your first post that you are doing a new type of sensor pod. I have got a Northtrek one here I am looking at working into a version somehow or I have the two from the Kaydee kit.
So far I have
  • Saladin class
    Dreadnought class
    Light cruiser class - in progress
    Akula class
    J Edgar class
And then some that will take a little bit of work to get right.
  • Hutzel class
    Oberth class
    Constellation class
    Peregrine class
    Nelson class
    Renaissance class - may look odd with the nacelles sideways

I don't have a Kaydee neck and secondary hull to hand and think at least the Hutzel would look better with the shorter closer secondary.

Saladin version all finished, and sorry to my followers as I have not posted updates on this one yet.

I now have planned two Akula classes in these great kits. I am also going to try my hand at making some aztek decals for them. I say two because I could not make my mind up to which way the engines should be.

They both have the impulse engine extra parts found at the Shapeway's shop. I have also decided to file down the saucer ridges that go from the command decks to the outer part of the saucer and also the two ridges on the edge of the saucer. Just to make it easier to make the decals really.

I will post more when I have more.

I'm not sold on some of the details, but overall I like these. I just need to behave myself and not tinker with someone else's design. Keep up the good work.

Last night I did some updates to the shop. All of these are to give a different look to your Klingon D-7, because why would you want your fleet to look the same way? All of these will plug right into the pylons of the AMT 2500 D-7, though you'll need to shave down the height of the tab. There is a link on the product description that you can use to check out the detail.

Klingon-y looking nacelles
Turtleshell Antagonists Nacelle 1
Image

Turtleshell Antagonists Nacelle 2
Image

Turtleshell Antagonists Nacelle 4
Image

Romulan-y looking nacelles
This one I made for the RBoP, but adapted it for the D-7. The thought is that some may want it for their Romulan fleet, post the Klingon-Romulan Alliance of the late 2260s. Turtleshell Antagonists Nacelle 3
Image

Romulan versions of these nacelles that you can use on your AMT 2500 RBoP are coming soon!

There are also Stormbird-style nacelles, again in case you want it for your Romulan fleet. There were based on an original design by Rob Willson and offered with his blessing. Parts to fully convert your D-7 into the Stormbird (impulse housing, nacelles, neck and front module) are coming soon

Ooooh, Daddy likes! Think you might be able to do me a favor and Biggy Size those for purchase in 1/1000 scale? :D
